Green snacks. 💚 Do anyone else’s kids love coloured themed snacking as much as mine do? We choose a colour and then set off on a food treasure hunt in the kitchen... it really is so fun and lovely to see them interacting together to see what they find. The cucumber cutouts I saw on @happyhealthycasa
a couple of weeks ago were a huge hit!

Who loves Roasted Chickpeas as a snack?? Homemade roasted chickpeas are super crunchy, super easy to make, and super cheap (🤑)!
The secret to making them right is to rinse the chickpeas and roast them first (no need to dry them), THEN add seasonings of choice and throw back in the oven for another 5 minutes or so.
Ingredients: 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp paprika
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Rinse chickpeas and place them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake chickpeas for 30-40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes. Careful not to overcook; they are done when slightly brown. Remove from oven and mix with olive oil and seasonings, coating well. Put back in the oven for another 5 minutes. Eat right away, or store and eat later (I store mine in the fridge).

Chickpeas, like other legumes, are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, which means they can help in digestion and help you feel full longer. 👏🏼They are also a great option for a plant based protein source. 🌱 Feel free to throw these in a salad or just snack on them alone! 😊

This is how I handle snack time.
☝🏻I usually give my kids fruit of vegetables, something that will not interfere with my dinner plans. Fruit and veggies are great because this way I know they are meeting their recommend amounts of fruit and veggies. Snack time is a great way to increase those requirements because let’s face it, kids love snacking.
✌🏻I stay away from processed food and added sugar. These types of foods are usually loaded with poor ingredients lacking in nutrients.
🤟🏻I always keep a range of healthy foods in the fridge at all times. It’s much easier to prepare snacks when you’re prepared. In my fridge you will always find carrots, cucumbers, yogurt and fruit. Easy to grab quick to make.
Have a fantastic Tuesday 👋🏻
Do you ever make homemade trail mix? I don’t love buying store bought trail mix because if you look at the ingredient list sometimes there is a ton of processed stuff stuff in there. •Homemade versions are super easy and you can control the ingredients. •Trail mix can be a life saver when life gets busy and you don’t have a lot of time to meal prep or make meals. •I like to make big batches and then add 1/2 cup to small glass jars so I can carry it with me during the day. It’s an easy way to add good nutrition to your day without thinking much and the options are endless. •Today I made this batch with things I had in my cupboard (dried mango, dried blueberries, freeze dried banana, sunflower seeds, cashews, pistachios, and almonds. Easy! Tell me your favorite versions of trail mix!

Anyone else a huge fan of the SALTY + SWEET combo? Made a big batch of some trail mix for my hubby to take to work for a snack. He's not a fan of dried fruits so I stuck to just the nuts, chocolate and coconut for this mix.
I will share a little tip that I have learned when it comes to making your own trail mix. Buy in bulk! Head to your favorite local store and hit up all their dry bins for any nuts, seeds and dried fruit that you fancy.
Pre packaged trail mix is not only super spendy but I also find that there is at least one thing in the mix that they I don't like. I end up picking around it and then am left with a bag full of whatever it is I don't like. What a waste.
Making your own allows you to control what is in the mix and also saves you 💰. Win win!
Have a good one friends, and don't work too hard. 😉 #coconutkate

Please don’t let other people’s expectations & opinions decide how you are going to live your life. Live your life on your terms. Be you and don’t care what others think. If your 40 and you want to dye your hair purple, then grab that box of purple dye and go on with your bad self!
Live your life how you want based on your OWN expectations & options. Plus, who wants extra weight to carry around 😂

As promised.. the first of the three pumpkin recipes 🎃 this one is the easiest lol sweet treat to cure those after dinner or 3pm sugar cravings!💫.
Pumpkin Spice + Caramel Fudge.
1 can coconut milk.
1 1/2 cup of pitted dates.
1tsp of cinnamon.
1 tsp of vanilla essence.
Pinch of salt.
2tsp of cinnamon.
1tsp of nutmeg.
2tbsp rice malt syrup.
1tbsp of natural peanut butter.
1 cup of pumpkin purée (I legit baked up some butternut pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg and made it myself)p.s- butternut pumpkin is a bit sweeter I found rather than any other type.
First I scooped all of the thick coconut milk off the top of the can, there should be a heap of liquid at the bottom. I only used about half of the liquid and the rest all of the thick creamy part.
Then I put the coconut milk, dates, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, vanilla essence, peanut butter, rice malt syrup into a food processor or blender and blitzed it up until it was extremely smooth and combined.
This mixture should be a custard like consistency.
I then stirred through the pumpkin purée.
After all is combined i put the mixture in a saucepan and boiled the mixture (on medium heat) whilst stirring consistently (and I mean really consistently so the mix doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn) until the mixture reduced and thickened. (About 10/15 mins this step should take).
Then pour the mix into a lined baking dish and set in the freezer for 3/4 hours. Then chop up and serve 🤩💓.
Store in the freezer in an airtight container ready for when you need it 😉💫💫.

these toasted coconut cashew bars still hold first place in my heart for snacks 🙏🏼 the texture, flavor, everything! and they’re simple to make (only 5 ingredients). i love these dipped in some yogurt and sprinkled with hemp seeds for a midday snack situation. recipe linked in bio!
In need of an easy make ahead breakfast? Look no further! Found the original recipe from @averiesunshine
- and it’s definitely a keeper! Here’s my gluten free twist on her original:
Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Bars
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup gluten free flour (I used Cup4Cup)
3/4 cup rolled oats (I used bobs red milk gluten free)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups frozen blueberries (could use fresh as well)
2 tsps sugar
2 tsps cornstarch
1. Preheat oven to 350. Place parchment paper on 8x8 baking dish.
2. In large bowl, microwave butter so it’s melted. Add flour, oats, sugars and stir to combine.
3. Save about 1 cup for topping. Place the rest of it on the bottom of the baking dish. Use the back of the spoon to press down on the mixture.
4. In the same (now empty) bowl, combine the fruit layer ingredients and stir.
5. Evenly distribute blueberry mixture on top of the crust in the baking dish. Top that with saved cup of crumb mixture.
6. Bake for 1 hr. Let cool completely before cutting (I put mine in the fridge to help the cooling process move along).
I hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend! Easter is a time to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus and to remind us of God’s power and love for us!
I got invited to a church potluck breakfast. I was a little limited with my hotel kitchenette, but I made my powerballs rolled in coconut because #festive
. I like making these because I can always change up the recipe to add in different flavors (probably have made a million different kinds), they are easy to make and take on the go, and are made of recognizable ingredients.
These ones have pb, honey, oats, cinnamon, salt, slivered almonds, mini chocolate chips, and unsweetened coconut.

✅ 8/10 - these very instagrammable donoughts are not only the cutest thing but also taste incredibly good. We also tried a salt caramel donough which was delish’. Highly recommended.
